ABC is moving forward with a drama project from John Ridley. The broadcast network got a jump on pilot season with the order today of a pilot for “Presence (unlic),” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“The project centers on a former Army veteran who finds herself interacting with a widely divergent and highly colorful cross-section of Los Angeles as she unintentionally begins a career as an unlicensed private investigator,” THR reports.
The project is another collaboration between Ridley and his “American Crime” collaborator Michael McDonald. Ridley will write the script and executive produce, with McDonald also on board as an executive producer, the report notes.
“The project hails from ABC Studios, where Ridley’s International Famous Players Radio Picture Corp. is under an overall deal, and McDonald’s Stearns Castle,” THR adds.
